RE at Bewsey Lodge

The children at  Bewsey Lodge have access to a broad ranging Religious Education curriculum. They study the four main religions , linking them to key spiritual questions and reflect on their own beliefs and ideas.

Our children have a respect and interest in other people's religions and cultures. They are given every opportunity to visit religious establishments and meet people of different faiths to their own.

As a school we celebrate all faiths festivals and believe that the  understanding of different faiths leads to a greater understanding of the world we live in and most importantly each other.

We currently have links with St Barnabus Church Bewsey, Hope Hall, The Islamic Centre Bewsey and the Foundry. We have also visited the Manchester Jewish Museum. We are hoping to extend our links into the wider community and beyond. We encourage our parents and families to share their faith and culture with our children and each other. We hope to develop this work further this year.

Philosophy for Children (P4C)

All of our teachers are Level 1 trained in P4C. Philosophy is taught on a weekly basis in Key Stage 1 and 2 where small groups are taken by the teacher each week during Friday Assembly. This quality time allows the children to think in more depth about a range of topics and current affairs. P4C is also used incidentally throughout the curriculum as a way of exploring difficult subjects, enhancing speaking and listening and embedding the school's drive for acceptance and respect of the lives and opinions of others.
